Inserting a subscript in the text in the following diagrams app.

In summary, the conversation was about the difficulty of adding a subscript to a subscript in a certain app. The person asking the question was informed that it is not possible to do so in the app, but they could use other methods such as using "_" or using LaTeX with the app's mathematical typesetting feature. Thanks was given for the helpful advice.

I want to inset the following text ##f_{2,G_2}##, but it seems I cannot include a subscript to ##G## in the following app:
https://app.diagrams.net
am I missing something? can it be done?
Thanks!

OK, then I'll use the old "_".

It looks like an emoticon... :oldbiggrin:

Or maybe use something else, like tikz in LaTeX (which is, BTW, a bit complex).

Oh I see!

Select Extras -> Mathematical typesetting and then you can use ## \LaTeX ## e.g. \(f_{2,G_2}\)

Thanks, you are a genius! should have played around with the app myself, I guess I would have found it eventually... nonetheless thanks!
